The year is 9665 AD. Our beloved Earth is gripped by the next Ice Age and uninhabitable. The human race is existing in desperate pockets of civilization spread around the galaxy in search of a new planet to call home. If only we hadn't run into the Phyrnosians, the outlook for the race may be a little less bleak...

After Ice is a free-form Massive Multi-Player Role Playing Game for the PC. Players will be able to explore massive worlds on foot, via land-based vehicles or from the air. Pilot your ship up through the atmosphere and out into space where you can dock with your capital ship and push through the 5th dimension of space-time to travel to other planetary systems faster than light. You can take a shuttle to the nearest space station to trade on the markets or buy parts for your ship. If you have the funds you could buy a mining ship which can gather resources from asteroids, moons and some planets. If you have the skills you can engineer those resources into useful tools and items for your own purposes or to sell for profit. If your ship has a reasonable cargo hold you could run courier missions or if you have the fire-power, and the stomach for it, engage in some good old-fashioned piracy! The choices and your destiny are only limited by your imagination.

The game is under development and scheduled for release in December 2015.
